Solar Powered WiFi Routers Begin Rollout

The US City of St Louis has begun a Solar Powered WiFi rollout as seen in this image here. Among the numerous advantages of using solar powered WiFi is that it provides portable, uninterrupted power supply for routers that harvest their energy directly from the sun, but perhaps more significantly an increased use of solar energy to cut power consumption will assist the broader community in curbing greenhouse gases emissions.But green routers have another advantage. Routers, sensors, road signs and other devices that derive their power from the sun or the wind don't need to be hooked up to wires, which often don't exist in remote locations.
